As someone who is actively inolved in the music ministry at my church, I highly recommend this movie. The movie is a lesson in what it means to worship and put me into a position where I found myself examining my motives as to why I sing on the worship team. Based solely on it's technical merits, the film is no Oscar contender. It is better than a lot of movies, not as good as others. On the other hand, if a movie touches a life, if that life is changed when they walk out of the theatre after having seen the movie, as this one has done for me, then whatever faults there may be in the film can justifiably be overlooked. If you want to learn what it really means to worship, this is a very good film and worth seeing.
I have to add, one of the things that impressed me most in this film was how the people at the church, and not just the choir, worshiped with their whole body. It's one thing to simply sing about the joy of the Lord, but when you express that joy with more than just your mouth, it takes the worship experience to a whole new level.
